I'm back. I guess I have't updated this in a while. The heat has returned so beach is the only option. You wouldn't believe the number of people I saw out at 2:30 AM last night. It's not comfortable to socialize during the day so wait until after dark when things cool off. I think I saw in the news that the States are really hot too. I guess people don't thin to not eat or go out until 11:00 PM.
The website for Mount Etna is: http://www.volcanoetna.com/. I still have not bought tickets for an August vacation but everything at works looks like I can go so I will doing some serious searching now.
